I think it's the same as everything else, it's temporary comfort. The same goes for eating comfort foods and smoking, you do it when you're feeling stressed out, depressed, etc, you don't really allow the long term affects to register.

Many people have an addiction to it. They started drinking, liking it and now their bodies have become accustomed to it so they can't quit.

People generally don't think drinking will harm them.. They think they have it under control. Then people end up taking a drink when they are stressed, had a hard day, upset or just plain want to have fun and get carried away.

I wish I could answer this for you but I don't get it either. The thing that drives me bonkers are the ones that drink and drive. I mean if you insist on drinking why can't you get a cab home.

depends on how much u drink, if u drink all the time 24/7 yes , it can cause problems with your kidneys , liver ect.

I dislike drinking and I do not entertain at home people who drink a lot. I do not have friends who drink. No body drinks among our relatives.
